>> oh, you're from sea ♪ to shining sea >> cenk: that might have been the worse thing i ever heard. i also have advice for the president. what to do in the last 11 days to cinch the deal. and then what does the romney tune do? they do it again. they go racist again. >> frankly, when you take a look at colin powell you have to wonder if that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he has a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> cenk: what reason would that be? >> yeah, i got a pretty good idea. we'll show the wholly in a little bit. then the republicans are terribly offended by this ad. >> my first time voting was amazing. before i was a girl, now i am a woman. i pulled back the curtain.
10:01pm
i voted for barack obama. >> cenk: but there is a twist to that story. i can't wait to shove that in the republicans' face. do you know what time it is? it's showtime. >> cenk: all right let's be honest. it's panic time. mitt romney is winning on the national level. on the popular vote. this is a collection of votes that the "huffington post" does, 47.3% to 46.9%. when you look at the margin of error, he is winning. when you look at other politics, there you have 47.9%-to-47.0%.
10:02pm
i thought barack obama would win the popular vote and the college electoral vote. this morning as i looked a the those numbers. that's not one poll. that's a combination of polls. there is some chance now that president obama loses the popular vote, which is amazing. why is that the case? president obama had to do these things. one was the other guy sucks check. we got that. i mean, he hammered romney and did it effectively. number two we didn't do that bad over the last few years. we could have done better but it was a mess in the first place. i think he has done a fairly good job presenting that story. that's a check. but here is the third thing things will get much better over the next four years. that's a case that president obama has not made that effectively or sometimes at all. the other guy is really bad. we're in the middle here. let us finish the job but there
10:03pm
is no overwhelming case, if you elect me again boy things will get much better. brian williams asked him about it on rock center. look at his luke warm answer here. >> would you be prepared to enact truly major changes. >> the plan that i put forward with education with making college and job training accessible to people, to insure that our manufacturing base is right back here in the united states opposed to overseas. the work we've done in increasing oil and gas production and clean energy, putting americans back to work, including veteran veterans rebuilding roads and bridges. those are all designed to make sure we have more rebust future that that was not that good of an answer. hey look, here are these numbers. this is why it's really important. when asked about the next four
10:04pm
terms. the first team like the second, only 4% want that. that's a horrible number. expect major changes 62%. now, is president obama in that answer offering major changes? it doesn't sound like it. that's a big problem for it, and mitt romney is trying to capitalize on that. this is what he says on the campaign trail. >> this is a time when america faces big challenges. we have a big election. we have a president who bring big changes. i will and he won't. >> cenk: well, the president has 11 days. he has got to some how tell the american people, hey, don't worry, the next four years will be much, much better because we have great positive change on the way. i'm not sure that he can do that. it doesn't mean that he'll lose but it will help his case in the next 11 days. let me bring in my rowdy friends, michael shure, jayar jackson, ana kasparian we're all here. ben let me start with
10:05pm
you. do you agree with this diagnosis or am i getting it a little wrong. >> as usual cenk, you're getting it a little wrong. yes, essentially. i wasn't listening to everything that you were saying. we've known each other for a long time. i'm tired of you. [ chuckling ] what the president is doing now we're not talking about policy but electoral strategy, it's correct. it's going well considering the difficult atmosphere that he's in. we keep taking polling snapshots and not looking at a broader polling picture which is largely unchanged since the movement of romney after the first debate. >> cenk: that movement was not good. to your point ben as to the fact--i don't want people to get freaked out but there are positive numbers. let's start with a-25, actually. voter registration. in critical five swing states, guys, we have 95,000 more
10:06pm
democrats than republicans that have registered in colorado, florida, iowa, north carolina, and nevada. in those same five states democrats are beating the republicans i by 159,000. you know it's democrats opposed to republicans asking for absentee ballots. final number, iowa, democrats have a 55,000-vote lead, it appears, based on those numbers. that's also a great situation. >> one thing you have to know about these states. if the president were to win the state of ohio, and if he were to lose florida and lose virginia, and lose north carolina even in that scenario, mitt romney would have to run through those states that you just mentioned. he would have to win four out of those five states and many of the scenarios that we put together, these numbers are really bad for that strategy that mitt romney has to complete complete. >> cenk: is anybody worried that he's going to lose the popular vote. >> you are i'm not worried.
10:07pm
>> it's crazy not to be worried about it. there is a chance of it. even with the best-case scenario of his winning the popular vote, romney has a really good chance of winning the popular vote. i don't think that's anything that we would want for the country. that's a foolish system for that to happen twice. >> one thing to stay, teach israel congressman from new york put in this very interesting motion to add 29 electoral votes to the person who wins the popular vote. i don't know how they came up with the number 29, but it's really interesting because what it would do is it would incentivize people to win the popular vote from los angeles to new york, washington. >> cenk: and if there is anything that i learned both candidates love israel. hopefully not before the election. guys on the idea of obama not having made the case that the
10:08pm
next four years are going to be much better, do you agree with that or do you think he has done better than i imagine. >> i definitely agree he has not made the case. he says the same types of things as he said in 2008. i got to focus on the students. i got to focus on women's reproductive rights. those are things that i truly believe he'll push for and he has made great changes when it comes to education, but i want to hear about fiscal policy. that's where the majority of people want to see change. he's not focusing on that enough. he says we have to attack the wealthy more. what are you going to do to get congress to agree with you on that? >> cenk: honestly, if i was running i'd have locked up some wall street guys. >> no question. >> cenk: that would have helped him tremendously. we're going to do a whole segment on. but he's an establishment guy. >> the reason why they're powered about the popular vote, you need a mix of both sides.
10:09pm
before we had obama had something to back it up. mitt romney he only has flower talk and no details. this time obama has all details but no way of saying it. i'm live to go a fantasy land, you need a little bit of both. there is not a little bit of both to either one of these guys. >> that's funny. there is an inherent problem in saying we need change in the next four years when you've been in the guy in the last four years. >> cenk: it's structural. look at the polling numbers right? let's go to ohio first a-31. romney is losing by four points in ohio. and that's just one poll, the cnn poll but a combination of polls still has president obama comfortably up. >> four polls in ohio two twos, a four and a five. >> cenk: then in nevada president obama has a
10:10pm
three-point lead in nevada. if he leads in nevada and ohio, it's a no-brainer, he's a winner. the electoral college is on his side. on the other side, meat loaf is on romney's side. he's about to do one of the worst renditions i've ever seen of any song. let's watch. ♪ everybody sing ♪ america ♪ america ♪ god ♪ his grace on thee ♪ crown thy good ♪ from sea ♪ from sea ♪ to shining ♪ sea ♪ >> that--a couple of things to say. first of all he blew the lyrics point one, not the song.
10:11pm
romney in the beginnini, u co d tellultehahameat loaf is going off the deepened, romney is frigid, if we let that video continue romney quickly moves to the other end. >> two points you made are good, two out of the three. >> cenk: i'm sorry i had to subject the audience to that. unbelievable. >> were they trolling his campaign? >> cenk: like they were trying to embarrass romney. romney normally looks like a robot, but here he is, i can't get out of here. >> it's not like bruce springsteen. i can't believe it. >> cenk: we'll leave that right there. when we come back we'll talk about well street. how obama should have gotten tough on 'em. we'll show how they hate him. but we'll show how well wall street did as well. we'll have a great guest for that. come back for that. >> he's smart, accomplished, in
10:12pm
fact obama's last election and romney this election. it's all about the economy. >> cenk: then we got a great elbow for you try to guess it. it's somebody that's in the news but elbow comes from very surprising face. guess at @tytoncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncncnc thomas jefferson said that a successful democracy depended on an informed electorate. our country's future depends on to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. take the time to learn about the issues. don't just vote, vote smart. double miles you can "actually" use. but with those single mile travel cards... [ bridesmaid ] blacked out... but i'm a bridesmaid. oh!

"x" marks the spot she'll never sit. but i bought a dress! a toast... ...to the capital one venture card. fly any airline, any flight, anytime. double miles you can actually use. what a coincidence? what's in your wallet? [ all screaming ] watch the elbows ladies.
10:14pm
[ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> cenk: president obama actually has been terrific to
10:15pm
the bangersthe bankers as we're about to show you but n nevertheless they feel scorned. they did a fundraiser for mitt romney and here is our cnbc covered it. >> a big fundraiser for mitt romney today. for some that's a reversal of support from four years ago when they backed president obama. >> he's smart accomplished and i backed obama the last election, and i'll back mr. romney this election. it's all about the economy. >> romney's message welcoming those in attendance including town thain wilbur ross, and john catsmatidis. he said he needs to do more than save america but save america's soul. >> you're going to save america's soul using those fat cat bankers those ass who
10:16pm
ruined our economy. who are you going to vote for unless you want to do the exact opposite than those idiots did when they crashed the economy in 2008. look at these numbers. these are amazing. s&p 500 up 80%. dow jones up 70%. that is the fifth best equivalent period since 1900. so terrific in that regard. how about corporate profits they're through the roof. under obama 77.9% increase. they have to be ecstatic with obama. but they're not. it's never enough. more more, more, more. and obama has the nerve to once slightly criticize them. this is what he said. >> did i not run for office to be helping out a bunch of fat cat bankers on wall street. >> cenk: oh, my god how can he call them fat cats!
10:17pm
you are fat cats! even if you think you're doing the right thing you're enormously wealthy. that's what a fat cat is. boo-hoo their feelings were hurt. the business who gave president obama $14.5 million in the last election cycle all of a sudden redirecting that money to mitt romney. romney has $18.3 million that he's raising from wall street, and president obama is down to $5.5 million, which is still a ton of money but still $9 million less than he raised last time from wall street. in order to talk about this, etc. bring in an exert. bill cohen. he has best selling book "money and power: how goldman sachs came to rule the world" great to have you again. >> always great to be here. >> cenk: is it that stupid fat cat--i don't mean stupid by president obama but stupid because they have given such enormous weight, oh, calling them a fat cat, is that what
10:18pm
ticked them off? financially they should love obama. >> well, you know, that's the irony. he calls them fat cats. he said he didn't want to help the fat cat bankers but he did. yes, the low on the dow was 6500 in march of '09. now it's twice as high, 13,000, what you didn't mention was that obama bailed out wall street without the bailout without the tarp without the trillions of dollars that the fed pumped through wall street, all those wall street firms could very well be gone. he saved those wall street firms. which means he saved their bonuses and billions of dollars in bonuses. you know wealthy firms payed out bankers and traders in the form of compensation. he did that, too. and then the reregulation of wall street, the dodd-frank, he
10:19pm
signed it into law but it has never been implemented yet. and wall street has its clause in our these regulations will be rewritten. and there has been no criminal prosecution. i cannot believe given our behind obama has been to wall street they can't stand him. the truth is if you look at romney's numbers eight of the top biggest givers were wall street firms with goldman sachs being a million dollars on top of that. the last time goldman sachs was at the top of obama's list. >> cenk: is president obama making a mistake here. it might be too late but did he make a mistake these four years being overly kind to the wall street guys, no arrests all the bailouts in the world and they gave $10 million to his opponent any way. what was the point of all that?
10:20pm
>> well, i mean, look, you have to recognize one thing. mitt romney is one of them is a wall street fat cat. founded bain capital, made hundreds of millions of dollars investing in private equity. wall street and bain capital have done tons of deals together. they've been scratching each other's backs for years. as a relative matter you have to expect that wall street will prefer mitt romney because he's going to be even kinder to wall street if imaginable than barack obama has been. i don't think if i was barack obama i would have done anything differently. he might have courted them a little bit more. he did have fundraisers that were not attended as well as they were four years ago. the overall feeling is anti-obama. they want romney in because he's one of them. i'm not sure what he could have done differently. >> cenk: i am, that's the thing.
10:21pm
why not go in the other direction. knowing that they're not going to like you no matter what you do, and our politicians are obsessed with money. they're soaked with money. all they can think about is campaign money. they're going to lose to the other guy, give him a lot more money, why not do something incredibly popular with the population and get tough on the bankers. why didn't the so-called progressive president do that? >> well, that is a big question that i have. as a progressive former banker, i knew from the outset, cenk when you name tim geithner as treasury secretary and larry sumners as larry shapiro you're telegraphing to wall street that it's basically going to be business as usual and you're not going to change that much. he definitely should have been much tougher on prosecution. there should have been criminal
10:22pm
prosecutions in this crisis, and he didn't allow that to happen. the fed in qe 1 qe 2 and qe 3 saying we're going to to keep interest rates low and he should have been much tougher on dodd-frank. it's not a good piece of legislation. they needed a real piece of legislation to get tough on bangers, and that did not happen either. i wish he had done what you said, but unfortunately he didn't do that. we knew it from the outset. >> cenk: bill, one quick thing here as usual as we get in those conversation we're stuck between a rock and a hard place because there was a name floated who might have been treasure secretary under mitt romney, and it was john thain. it's mind boggling. no matter how frustrated we are with obama romney is going to be worse with how solicitous of
10:23pm
wall street he's going to be. >> the other name i heard potentially is jamie dimon. one of those reads across the aisle names. you have the head of jpmorgan chase as treasury secretary that again is a signal of restoring the status quo as quickly as possible on wall street. any possibility of meaningful change will go out the window. >> cenk: bill cohan, thank you for joining us on "the young turks." we appreciate your expertise. when we come back john suununu once again. here is his racism once again. >> what what that be. >> i applaud colin for standing with him. >> cenk: this guy sickens me, man. then we have billionaire steve wynn and's trying to intimidate his employees as well, and he's
10:24pm
also hurt by obama. >> guys like me are job creators, and we don't want a bull's eye painted on our back. the president is trying to put
10:25pm
10:26pm
always outspoken, now unleashed. joy behar. >> on my next show, rocker pat benatar and "mrs. brady" herself florence henderson. it's the behar bunch. >> only on current tv. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> cenk: now colin powell is part of the real politics branch of the republican party. they did not like the neo-conservative overreach of the administration so he wound up voting for barack obama in 2008. john mccain was aggressively pro war in middle east, and appeared to be headed in the wrong direction by colin powell. the same neo-conservatives have gone into the romney camp.
10:27pm
so colin powell is behind barack obama again. >> he the president got us out of war, and did not get us in any new wars i think we ought to keep on the track that we are on with respect to governor romney i have the utmost respect for him. but as i listen to what his proposals are, especially with respect to dealing with our most significant issue with the economy, it's cut taxes and compensate for that with other things. but that compensation does not cover all of the cuts intended or the new expenses associated with defense. >> cenk: so interesting intelligent comments about mitt romney foreign policy and domestic policy. but john sunuunu has a different idea why colin powell is backing
10:28pm
barack obama. >> frankly when you take a look at colin powell. you have to wonder if that is based on issues or is there a slightly different reason for preferring barack obama. >> what reason would that be. >> when you have someone from your own race who is president obama, i applaud powell for standing for him. >> cenk: the neo-cons and the fact that powell is crossing the republicans--no, no, no. this is what he sees. he sees colin powell and barack obama, look at that, they're both black. that's a classic case of projection. he thinks us republicans we vote based on race. if there is a black quite versus a white guy we vote for the white guy. that's what cool bin powell is doing, too. no colin powell has a brain.
10:29pm
's not a gut r rctctn racisistt liou j jn sunuunu. apparently he felt bad about this again this is the eighth time he has done it on the campaign trail specifically about race. he walked it back today and said i do not doubt it was based on anything but his support of the president's policies. expect when you said it was about race. >> he's miserable miserable guy, john sununu. and he's the living embodiment of that party of a thousand years ago. >> cenk: why are they doing this. if they send sununu out he at least three different times made racial attacks on the president. do they think they he have not shored up the racial vote yet. >> it has something to do him getting elect the.
10:30pm
but after it's all done, once you say something, and you say it to the people you wanted to say it to, saying later well, i didn't think it that way. it stays with them. taking it back does not take it back. >> no one reads that in his statement he released later. they all know that. is this effective political strategy? you got it. by the way, one of them is white, and the other is black. you have the racist vote. why keep doing this. >> their way of thinking, di i think they're wrong and i hope they're wrong. their way of thinking is let's put it out there so people don't have to secretly think it themselves and feel bad for it. >> cenk: that's interest. >> they're saying it's okay to think that. >> cenk: you got a former governor saying it, that's real interesting. >> it's legitimate any way. that's the thing. i don't think they feel any shame in it. he looked at colin powell and he sees a black general. he's from that part of the
10:31pm
population that doesn't see a general but a black germ general. i think this are a lot of them in that party. >> i don't think it's a strategy. they want to deny the fact that there are people even among republicans, that don't like romney policies ideas. if you want to keep your head in the stand and say people are voting for barack obama because he's black. or he has the latino vote because he's minority. >> cenk: that's also interesting. maybe the idea is, look, you couldn't possibly vote for obama if you cared about policies or issues or results. only people who vote for him are blacks and latinos who are doing it based on race. maybe that's the dog whistle they want to send out there. there is one other thing i want to talk about. steve wynn owns a lot of casinos including the wynn in vegas. they've put out a pamphlet, a
10:32pm
67-page pamphlet in how to vote. it says the prefer candidates support policies that promote a friendly business and living environments to wynn resorts our approximately 12,000 employees and gaming industry as a whole. they're in nevada, which is a swing state. that's a wink, wink, nod nod vote our way or we might fire you. they didn't say who to vote for on the presidential ticket, but i don't know if you could figure it out in this report watch. >> i created 250,000 direct and indirect jobs. that's exactly--the number is 250,000. that's 250,000 more than this interest, who i'll be damned if i want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. i'm a job creator. guys like me are job creators. we don't like having a bull's eye painted on our back and the president as tried to put himself between me an my
10:33pm
employees. >> how. >> by class warfare. by deprecating and calling a group that makes money billionaires and millionaires who don't pay their share. >> cenk: wait a minute. you are billionaires and millionaires and you're paying one of the lowest tax rates in american history. by pointing out the reality putting me between me and my employees--because he goes on picnics with his employees all the time and obama has got in the way. >> did we figure out who he was running for? i think it was romney. >> what kills me, i bought that entire outfit. >> by losing all that money. >> i thought it was wayne newton. >> cenk: i think this might help obama. his employees employees are not stupid. oh the boss man wants me to vote for all the republicans who give him more breaks.
10:34pm
>> the assumption that all of these employees worship at the feet of this guy and do whatever he says, there is probably a segment of them in up and middle management but the rank and file, perfect about it. >> guys who say guys like me are not guys who have a lot of friends. this mostly applies to me, cenk and michael because you don't gamble as much but between sheldon adelson and steve wynn. where is the patriotic american supposed to stay in vegas. >> you can go to atlantic city and stay stay at trump's. >> by the way steve wynn is an idiot who put his elbow through a $139 million picasso painting. you want to take his advice on anything? >> he's regular guy. >> i told my employees don't get between me and my picasso. when we come back, we're going to do our state by state

today, senator harry reid was in a car accident. he walked into the hospital after the accident, we should talk about him briefly. harry reid's machine that delivered him a victory against sharon engle last time is said to be responsible for delivering the presidency and possibly this senate seat because shelly berkeley was enshrouded in controversy. this is a berkeley-heller ad about berkeley, obama and reid on the scene. >> shelly berkeley is listed in this year's list of most corrupt position. >> she used her office. >> to benefit her husband. >> the political cause and personal financial gain the line is fuzzy. >> cenk: so i'm always amused by

executive orders and agencies, brings all of this stuff, dumps it on us in missouri. >> cenk: he already has problems with female voters and then he calls her a dog. >> what i was trying to show, mccaskill that's what her strategy was just keep todd akin talking. that's what i'm referring to, and that's what he did. all you have to do when running against these people is let them do it for you. >> cenk: that seems to be good news. this was one that was in danger at the beginning of the season. the republicans were confident they were going to pick it up. now with a nine-point deficit and todd akin still talking it looks like it's over and the democrats will retain that. that's interesting. just a quick tweet jeffrey dodd said @tytoncurrent any way you guys can talk about this year's election. of course, none of these polls matter at all if you don't actually go and vote, then
10:44pm
they're irrelevant. >> and if you don't like either of the two, there is gary johnson, rocky anderson just vote. >> cenk: what about maine. >> the republicans and the democrats pulled out independent former governor will be the senate where he caucuses, nobody knows. they think the democrats or he may not caucus can either of them. >> cenk: all right, when we come back pauley shore in the studio. he has very interesting political opinions. >> have you seen me in a movie lately? >> no. >> that's my problem. the economy screwed me. >> cenk: and there he is at the wall. i mean, i'm curious about herman cain and all the conversation that he had. we'll be right back with pauley. current tv encourages you to vote on november 6th but just as importantly to take the time to learn about each candidate's

it's called "pauley ticks." let's watch this clip here. >> there's a name for that, pimpin'. >> i want to know why so many women like to have sex with politicians. >> if i was caught in a sex scandal, no one would care. >> it's pauley shore, who cares. >> do you think that obama god owe sam. no, just the name. think about it. that is weird. isn't that weird? >> have you seen bio dome. >> why are you going there bro. what's up with that? >> never what's up, br oh o. >> be yourself. be pauley. >> right right. >> cenk: all right pauley shore is in the studio. >> thank you, thank you, thank you. >> cenk: all these guys talk to you, what is your impression of herman cain and michael. >> they're really nice. >> mm-hmm. >> the focus on the special
10:50pm
was--when americans and most people look at these people, look at the politicians, they speak this language that most people don't understand, so as the pro produceer-director i wanted to slow them down so i understood what the hell they were talking about and then the camera understood what the hell they were talking about. it's for people who aren't into it, and there a lot of people who are not into it. >> cenk: it's an interesting paradigm. of course they're nice in real life. i've talked to a lot of republican pundits. i'm on the same show, and they're nice. but at the same time, their policy is to cut taxes from the rich. they have to get it somewhere and a lot of times they get it from the middle class. did you reconcile that? >> it seems with the republicans, their big thing that they're bringing up is the economy screwed up and obama
10:51pm
keeps bringing up the fact that the wars that george bush brought us into, and there's no weapons, nothing. it's like he doesn't--i don't know. >> cenk: did you walk away thinking, now that i've seen guys on both sides i'm clearer on my political position? >> no, for me personally i'm both. you know what i mean. >> cenk: how how, what does that mean? how are you both. >> the one thing that the republicans i think do bring up is the fact that they don't like victims. do you like a victim? someone who just-- >> cenk: i might want to help them. >> i'm talking of victims of people who are living off the system. >> cenk: you mean like bankers yeah i don't like them. >> have you ever watched msn lock up. there are a lot of people in there that they go to jail and
10:52pm
they live off the system. >> cenk: well, they're in jail. they don't have a choice. >> but the point is that they--some people, they try to better themselves. as far as the republicans the bottom line is, i don't know, they have to--if you're really working to make yourself better, then you should. if you're living off the system then that's not good. it's a case by case. >> cenk: i totally agree. those wall street guys living off of us, and the bailouts, i can't stand them. i wish the republicans would get tough on them. >> and there are a lot of unemployment who continue to live off unemployment who don't try to better themselves. >> cenk: i have more sympathy for them. i was on unemployment for a while after i was laid off. >> i've been on unemployment for a long time. you haven't seen me in a movie.

>> cenk: i hear you brother. sometimes we stay on it too long. but i'm much more worried about corporation who is are taking giant subsidies and living off of us. if you had to vote today, are you going to tell us who you're going to vote for. >> i know who i'm going to vote for. but i don't want to say who i'm going to vote for. >> cenk: is that a thing you don't want to alienate people. >> pretty much. because i know what i want. i know who i'm going to vote for. >> cenk: did you grow up in a democratic or republican family. >> i grew up on the sunset strip. you tell me. >> cenk: i'm guessing democrat. but that's not necessarily where you're going now. >> i like things about both parties. i think everybody does. >> cenk: out of all the guys we talked to, who is your favorite. >> i loved barney frank. >> cenk: he's fun. >> to me he could be a comic. but i liked herman cain. he likes to drink and he likes
